Re: Air Filter? (ZIRB3L)

You MAY get 1, 2 hp at the most with an aftermarket filter under the right conditions.<br>You usually need an exhaust to get all that hot air OUT faster

K&N drop-in panel filter is probably what you heard the hype about (without all of the exhaust upgrades), but like JRL mentions, only 1 or 2 HP at the most. Still a good deal with these as you can clean them and re-use them. However, it's very important that when you do clean and re-use, you follow all directions for cleaning and re-oiling correctly. Do a google search for them and you should find some good deals on them. Expect to pay in the mid to high $30's for one.
